Bay windows are comprised of three windows that extend from your home. The idea behind having the window extend away from the building is that more light can be let into your home, and more of the outdoor scenery can be viewed. Due to this feature bay windows are commonly found in living rooms, master bedrooms, family rooms, and sometimes breakfast nooks.
Typically, bay windows are comprised of a fixed center window and two casement windows on the outer sides, but can also be built using a combination of windows such as hung windows.
The structural design of bay windows inherently allows them to bring more light into the living space when compared to standard fixed, hung or casement windows placed flat against a wall. Bay windows are also great for bringing fresh air into your home when fitted with casement windows on the one or both of the outer sides, since the extension from the wall allows the windows to be more exposed to breezes.
Originally designed with the intention of capturing magnificent views, specifically those of lake or ocean view “bays”, bay windows can be an excellent addition for any home with an amazing view to be captured. Prominently featured on homes built during the English renaissance, bay windows would traditionally be placed at the end of a great hall; overlooking a bay or other picturesque viewpoint.
